Hi there!  I have lots of crafty skills, but sewing clothes is not one of them!  I am wondering how to fix a problem with those stretchy jeans.  It seems that all the jeans you can buy have at least some stretch to them now.  I think my body shape doesn't work well for this though.  It seems that my waist is a bit smaller than my hips so after a few wearings the waist is stretched out and the jeans are falling off.  I would love to put something on the inside of the waist to keep the shape so that I don't have to always wear a belt but I'm not sure what to use or how to do it.  Any help would be appreciated! 

Also I have a pair of jeans someone picked up for my 3yo from Goodwill.  They are super cute but missing one half of the snap closure.  (Maybe it has a different name besides snap because it's much bigger than the kind you just sew right on.)  How should I fix that? 

Thanks in advance!!!

Progress not perfection.

An answer to #1:  I would sew twill tape on the inside of the waistband (don't stretch while sewing).  This should stabilize it and keep it from stretching out.  I think!   Smiley
